I saw this at Closet Child and it was too funny not to grab. SACCI showing off his guns (again).
So they started off and came in. The girls in front of me were kind of a pain. Anyway, everyone came in and SACCI had his aviators on with the outfit it was ridiculous and we went into Tarantula. But then in the middle of the first song Kamui’s equipment broke down and they had to stop. SACCI was like “whoa what’s wrong Kamui” and held up his waterbottle with the straw broken and was like “you even broke your water bottle!!!” So, they went about fixing it and during that time Nuppe took the time to tell us how he had trouble too: his frog couldn’t be on the amp today (they were hanging off of mics and the drum set). SACCI stared at him like he was an idiot and probably said something along those lines, but i can’t remember.
After a while it seemed okay and SACCI said that they’d enter again, so they left the stage. But then staff came on and they hurried about fixing it. Kamui and I think Nono even came back at one point to fix it.
So, thirty minutes late they started again. This time everyone had their aviators on and it was much more successful. The set didn’t break down again during Tarantula and they were able to continue.
But then on the 2nd or 3rd song(? I thought but it might have been later based on set list) another thing happened. I saw at the end something go flying but I wasn’t sure what it was. I thought maybe a pick for a second but then realized Nuppe’s picks are red and it was in his area so it couldn’t have been that and maybe I was just seeing things. And then SACCI said that just as the song was ending he turned around and he broke Nuppe’s peg with his hand. And Nuppe said that honestly he was more worried about SACCI’s hand (he said in the blog he was glad it’s not broken but it was red as hell and he honestly bled a lot so I’m still not sure…). Because of this stuff Nuppe and Kamui were a bit off the rest of the live. At encore Nuppe regained a little of his usual bouncy energy, but for the most part he was playing with a pretty serious face most of the time. I think that’s the main reason why I’m upset—I just feel really bad for Nuppe. They can and did recover from the mishaps but he obviously was shaken up by it (even during mada konai ANGEL he didn’t get up to his usual antics so much)…
Anyway, they went searching for the peg and Nono found it and Nuppe and staff taped that shit back on so I believe how they killed time was by teaching us the furitsuke to タンヤオ (but I could be wrong who knows!).
So, SACCI taught us the furitsuke and there’s a pose that we do at SEI! But during chokochokochoko part he couldn’t remember how exactly the hand movements went and the jouren had to remind him. Also, SACCI was like ok MUSIC and Kamui actually started the music and you could see SACCI do a double take but then they stopped the actual music and he was like “Kamui! What are you doing!? you normally sing it for us” and Kamui was like OH RIGHT SORRY and then they had Kamui try to sing it for them and he messed up royally so they went to Hirobucky who was super into it—starting before where they went and like when they got to one part Nono was like OMG IT’S MY PART (not saying it out loud but you could see the realization on his face). Anyway, gold star/hanamaru for Hirobucky. The furitsuke was fun and so was that song. I think I like it live more than recorded.
The first half of the live was a lot of new songs. And then the second half got heavier with old songs—but I found out that the furitsuke for old songs has changed a little bit. Whaaat. So while the live started off a little slow it gradually got heavier and a lot more fun. Still, I’m a little disappointed (I’m not sure what the right word is honestly) for the boys at the troubles they had.
There was a drum solo and Kamui would stop and have us call out his name. And then it went into ガネーシャ it seems but they repeated the intro over and over and mm so much bass, then Nono joined in but who cares bass!!!! I guess they did ガネーシャ then?
But anyway during an MC later SACCI asked us what we called out for Kamui’s drum solo and of course we called out “Kamui,” but SACCI was disappointed in us and proposed that we call out “kusomen” for Kamui to freak everyone out at event lives (they were really going on about Kamui being kusomen in the in stores the day before in Nagoya and Osaka). But Kamui was like “If you do that, my heart would slowly wither away.” So, we’re not changing Kamui’s nickname to kusomen any time soon I think.
They played 怨念少女 at one point and I was so excited I love that song so much. During 魔物大行進 we managed to moshi without everyone falling down once but the last time we had the moshing it happened. Also the furitsuke for old songs has changed from what we used to do so even if you watch the videos you might not be able to do it (I’m mostly thinking of koukai something channel)……
So, we had and encore and instead of going right into a song they had Hirobucky vs. Kogoe (their manager’s nickname; everyone knows his real[?] name though) face off again. They played a video of them talking about each other. And what I remember from Bucky’s he was like “i get replies quickly from girls! idk why he doesn’t reply to me I DELETED HIS NUMBER” and then Kogoe was like hey nuppe let’s go to karaoke and was like “bucky has a lot of good qualities yeah, for example………. for example……………………………………………………… for example………………………………………………………………… hey, nuppe you go ahead this’ll take a bit”
So SACCI came out as referee and then called Hirobucky to the blue corner. We gave Hirobucky a little love but when Kogoe came out there was so much sakiing and sakigoeing for him. Kogoe, the most loved member of the band and he isn’t even a member.
So they did rock paper scissors and whoever won had to try to hit the loser on the head with a plastic mallet and whoever lost had to put on a helmet (which was Hirobucky’s helmet for his scooter). Kogoe said that Hirobucky’s hands seemed slow. And then SACCI checked them for weapons by patting them down including grabbing both of their crotches and there was totally a “oh you’re small” comment after. So, the first one Kogoe lost but they both grabbed the helmet. Next Kogoe lost again but they both grabbed the helmet again. So, someone made the joke that Hirobucky just really liked the helmet since it was his (he was wearing it while they were loading up the van after the live too, lol). Anyway, in the end, Kogoe won.
So Hirobucky was like “HEY. HEY. DO YOU SEE THIS!!!” and it was the KAZ sunglasses and Kogoe was like “you’re going to do this again really….” And they did KAZ48. Everyone else came on stage with their matsuri shirt things and aviators on and we all did the dance to the call and response song. Kogoe was even doing the dancing. KAZ himself seems to forget at times what the hell we’re supposed to be doing with the dancing. It was hilarious and great and SACCI kept his matsuri shirt on and I think it was after NANDAKANDA that nuppe asked him how long he intended to wear it.
Ok setlist from SACCI’s blog:
At the end we did our jump but it wasn’t the usual one. I think we did the SEI! pose a couple times and then grabbed hands and jumped. We had a practice run to make sure everyone could do it too, lol.
actually i really like their outfits without the head parts and they didn’t play with them on so that’s good. but the head dress things throw me off a lot, I’m glad they didn’t play with them on. But I do want to see them with the head things on in person just once….
For demachi we didn’t talk to them much (they were driving back to Tokyo that night). But my friend did make me show Nuppe the picture of the sexy frog (that’s a long story) lmao. And I was going to a vending machine to get myself a coke zero and she was like what get Nuppe something!! And I was like what does he even drink?? (I don’t pay attention to pictures of sashiire unless I gave something). So she told me coke but I didn’t buy anything for him and well.. she told him about it and he asked me what I got and I showed him my coke zero. Looks like he wanted it anyway, hahaha. Too bad~~ (I’ll most likely get him a few cokes next time to make up for it). And then they finished loading up the van, nuppe climbed into the back in his little hole they made on top of his frog plushies, waved to us and shut the back of the van.
I pulled cheki but I didn’t get pictures of them yet. I have a picture of my friend’s cheki nono cheki
I caught Kamui’s drumstick. I fuckin ninja’d that thing. It’s barely used though, must have been encore only.
